Ya, espec. w/Ottavino on his way back, too

Melvin Upton the real deal or is he a prime sell-high guy? Thanks!
Paul Sporer
3:01
It's only a .743 OPS, so ya I think it's real. He has pop and speed and as long as he's healthy, those are staying IMO
Josh

Taillon is on waivers in my 12 team mixer. Is he worth a claim over the likes of Gio, McHugh, or McCarthy?
Paul Sporer
3:02
Ehhhh, probably not. Just not that many innings left in the tank this year. I'd probably look toward the others
mookie best
3:02
Am I crazy to ponder benching McCutchen for platoon-advantage Reddick or Duvall (also have betts & jbj)? Daily transactions so I can act when Cutch gets hot but damn he's frustrating, esp when I have options... thanks dude
Paul Sporer
3:04
I'm usually strongly a "start-your-studs" guy, but I like your gameplan here and the ability to drop him in if he does catch fire makes it easier to bench him for a bit in favor of Reddick / Duvall in their favorable matchups.
Josh Bell
3:04
All I have ever done, since being a highly touted HS player is hit. I'm .300/.370/.460 for my career in the minors but never been a top 25
Paul Sporer
3:05
Solid top-50, though. 1B prospects don't always get their love
Rags
3:05
Is W Chen back?
Paul Sporer
3:06
I think he'll be better than a 5-something, but I do worry about the surge in HRs across the league really impacting him
Kevin Durant
3:06
Do you have any inside info on when the Yankees will deal chapman to the Cubs for Jorge Soler
Paul Sporer
3:07
I couldn't have less inside info :)
JTP

Is Rodon worth holding out on?
Paul Sporer
3:07
Really depends on league size/type
Meant to get this disclaimer out earlier, but please include league context otherwise it's really tough to give good answers

Is Sano for Cole fair value? Should i be setting my sights lower or could I do better if I package someone like Osuna with Sano. Badly need pitching help and am about to punt saves in a 12 team 5x5 redraft league
Paul Sporer
3:09
I'd give that a shot. It'd be a nice buy-low on Cole (not that low, Sano is no shlock, obv)

Standard 5 hitting cats (w/ avg): pls rank by future value (over next 3-4 years): Story, Semien, Nunez, D Travis. Thanks
Paul Sporer
3:12
Story, Travis, Semien and Nunez... I know I just ranked the All-Star last, but we have 1240 PA of mediocrity before this so I'm not sure this is the start of some renaissance for Nunez
Who is John Gant?
3:12
If T. Shaw had broken his foot last night, would there have been much of a chance that we'd soon see Holt at 3B and Benintendi manning left field? I was excited there for a moment...(Sorry Travis, you're cool too)
Paul Sporer
3:12
Bro
3:13
Don't ever be excited about someone possibly getting hurt
Gorky

10-team redraft SS challenge trade: Correa for Xander. Which side you got ROS?
Paul Sporer
3:13
Correa, but it's agonizing to really pick one over the other.
3:14
Please don't repeat questions, y'all. I'm moving as quickly as I can.
AJ
3:14
12 team keep forever OBP/SLG, I'm out of contention. Should I trade JBJ/Nola for Dahl/1st?
Paul Sporer
3:14
What can you get with that 1st? I'd say no, tbh
Tino Martinez
3:14
How would you rank these pitchers ROS: Darvish, Hendricks, McCullers, Shoemaker, S. Wright .... thanks!
Paul Sporer
3:17
McCullers, Hendricks, Shoe, Darvish, Wright ... I think Darvish will be really volatile and could get hurt again. I just don't like post-TJ guys in Year 1. Betting on McCullers to cut that BB%, but I think he will
Pepperoni
3:18
I'm considering targeting cespedes in a 10 team NL Only keeper (keep 8). What is the likelihood he opts out of his deal, potentially wrecking my plan if he ends up in the AL
Paul Sporer
3:18
Strong and then TBD on where he'd go. That's why you can't really plan that far ahead in keeper leagues.
Bork
3:18
I think I took a wrong turn somewhere. Can you direct me to the local ludeburger?
Paul Sporer
3:18
No, it's here. Try the ludeburger and cocaine shake combo
Mojo

Seems a little crazy, but Duvall or Bautista RoS (5x5 w/ Avg)? Seems like Bautista should be safer, but injured + Duvall has been good.
Paul Sporer
3:20
Still prefer Bautista.
Christian

Do you believe in the second half downfall that everyone seems to be predicting for Jason Hammel?
Paul Sporer
3:21
We discussed it a bit on the pod. It's not bc he sees the calendar and just turns to shit, I think it's a durability thing. He just struggles to make it through an entire season with health. So yeah, I do kinda buy it. He' is 33 after all
Matt Lattos
3:21
Odds that post-trade deadline, Beni is in the AL? I lose him if he goes to the NL so maybe I should deal him... I am in a pennant race
Paul Sporer
3:21
72%? If you're in a race, I'd definitely deal him even w/out the potential trade looming
